Exhibition: Urban Design & the Next Generation

VENUE: Project Space Gallery


The field of urban planning traditionally exists within the confines of City Hall, but challenging times call for new approaches to the envisioning of our city’s future. Part of Montalvo Arts Center’s commitment to the next generation, the 2008 Youth Action Coalition with ADOBE Youth Voices, led by popular education crew, headRush, explores the future of Downtown San José through theatre-based activities, visual art and digital media. The YAC, a diverse group of mostly high school age students from seven Silicon Valley schools, met weekly for 11 weeks before joining with additional youth for a one-week Summer Institute to create this installation -- our contribution to the collective re-envisioning of our urban landscapes.

We invite you to use the visual and sound imagery as inspiration for your own dreams and inventions, your own re-awakening to the infinite possibilities of the human imagination and the potential of our cities.
